Brosowsky comes to The Quaker School from The Spence School in New York City where he led the Resource Center, providing support for 70 students with learning disabilities in kindergarten through 12th grade. He also served on the Diversity Council, aimed at increasing enrollment of students of color, hiring faculty of color, and improving community life for all people of color at Spence.
Prior to his time at The Spence School, Brosowsky was Director of the Albany Academies’ Center for Teaching and Learning. There he supported approximately 75 students ranging in age from 3 to 19 and provided faculty development in the areas of differentiated instruction, executive functioning, and literacy. Brosowsky says he is proud to return to a Quaker school, as he earned his first independent school leadership position at Oakwood Friends School in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., where he provided learning strategy instruction to students with learning and emotional disabilities.
Mr. Brosowsky started after a week of intensive training at the National Association of Independent School’s Institute for New Heads. The Quaker School community looks forward to welcoming Alex Brosowsky and his family.
